Sheriff: Suspects in fatal NC attack switched stolen cars

September 10, 2019 GMT

WHITEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say suspects in the targeted killing of a North Carolina family have dumped a stolen getaway car and are now believed to be traveling in another stolen vehicle.

A Columbus County sheriff’s statement says deputies responded Monday to a report of a Chevrolet Silverado near Whiteville stolen by suspects whose description matches the suspects in Saturday’s attack.


The sheriff’s office said gunmen killed a couple and their 5-year-old son and wounded the boy’s grandmother Saturday morning before fleeing in a victim’s car. That car was abandoned near where the Silverado was stolen.
